I take a birth control pill and this past week I should be on my period. I have not had it yet, but I have had the flu for the past week and half and taking medicine for my symptoms. Could having the flu prevent me from having my period? And should I continue with the medicated pills when I'm suppose to or wait to have my period and then start up the pills again?

when you take any kind of medicine while on the pill, the meds can possibly throw the effect of the birth control pill off.. you could have very well conceived while taking your b/c pill and the meds from being sick. Either take a HPT or make an appt to see your doctor to find out for sure.
